The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will measure formaldehyde levels in 500 trailers provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as housing for victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The CDC will test 500 of the trailers over a five week period, but there are over 46,000 trailers still in use for the victims of Katrina.

How did they come up with 500 is not in the article and it does not mention whether there would be more testing in the future.
